The Hop Studio – El Dorado Pale Ale 5.6%
Through every iteration of our growth over the last demi-decade, one thing that has persisted throughout is this brewery’s love of hops, and how we’ve born an entire business that now looks after the livelihoods of fourteen team members from this love. The Hop Studio felt like a natural extension of this love – showcasing the single most complex, wonderfully diverse ingredient we use in our process bar none. El Dorado was a hop with which we really knew we were onto something when we first used it on the cult classic El Dorado Mosaic IPA back in 2018 in those halcyon Loka Polly days. We’ve developed our processes and techniques tenfold since that first brew to where we feel comfortable with all the quirks and idiosyncrasies of this incredible stateside varietal, as mysterious as the mythical city it shares its name with. Check off a whole host of bold pineapple, mango and pear notes, backed up with a resinous bitterness in this all out maxed up pale.
